We had a great time on Thursday welcoming developers into our new London office. We held our inaugural meetup on the topic of Location Based Services. There was a great turnout - and I want to thank everyone who came along - especially our presenters. We had Ricky Brundritt talking about Bing Maps developer tools.
Bing have some really high resolution imagery for maps and it will be interesting to see if they can take significant market share from Google. Next up, Shazad Rehman discussed the Pearson Location API.
Pearson are behind some really big brands - which means they're perfect if you need high quality content for your apps. Then, Taras Filatov from QuickBlox.
